The price of greatness is responsibility.
My husband received this fortune cookie last week when he was touring our state on a public speaking route. It was meant for him.
My husband is a great man. That being said, he carries a lot of weight on his shoulders.
My husband is a great leader of our house. It is no easy task raising 3 teenagers. It requires the perfect balance of love and discipline. All this he has done without having a father to show him.
My husband is a great business leader. He started a successful business out of an idea. He had no clue what he was doing, but was willing to learn. He earned his MBA. Over time and hard work, he became the expert in our state. Running a business is a heavy weight to carry. The responsibility is enormous, but so is the reward.
Over the years, he has been involved in many boards and committee chairs. He volunteered to get the finances in order for several organizations. If there are conflicts or issues, his phone is the first that is ringing for advice, problem solving, and resolution.
He gives, and gives, and gives..Someday he said he might retire from it all. But I’m not so sure that will ever happen.
I don’t say it often enough, but I am proud of how great Paul is and everything he does to help others. So often I am guilty of heaping more problems on him instead of showering him with appreciation.
I would thank him personally, but he is at a meeting right now.
